The Beaver County Sheriff's Office is hosting a law enforcement only training on Tuesday April 9th, 2019. The UCJIS Cold Case Database training will be primarily focused for those who will be entering or inquiring into the UCJIS Cold Case Database.
Today I was honored to give a certificate of appreciation to Mary Flores. On December 15, 2018 she heard an “attempt to locate” over her scanner while working the graveyard shift at High Country Chevron. She noticed the suspects and vehicle when they pulled into the station for fuel and called dispatch. Deputy Lonnie Laws located the vehicle and made an arrest. This arrest lead to evidence of a $30,000 burglary in Richfield at Jorgensen Honda earlier and other possible burglaries throughout Utah. Great Job Mary!

On February 7th, 2019 at approximately 5:09 pm, the Beaver County Sheriff's Office received a call of an avalanche that had swept up two of three snowmobile riders. The subject who called in had been with the two friends in the area commonly known as the "Bowl" or "Anderson Cut #2", located in eastern Beaver Mountains near the border of Piute and Sevier Counties. The caller had tried to warn the other two subjects of the avalanche, however his attempts were unsucessful. The two subjects were buried by the avalanche, one subject was able to dig himself out and attempts are still being made to find the one remaining subject.
